I build regularly and find WD drives to be very quiet, reliable and fast. This drive is no exception and is fantastic value bought at this price from dabs. I've not had one go bad or arrive doa. Of all the drives I've tried these seem to be the best and are always my first choice. Thanks Dabs for very good service too.
